Mulligans Irish Pub and Super 8 Motel Settlement
$50,000 in Fines Paid by Mulligans Irish Pub and Super 8 Motel
On October 7, 2004, the U.S. EPA settled a case for $50,000 with two South Lake Tahoe business owners for improper asbestos removal. During the remodeling of Mulligan's Irish Pub in July 2001, the U.S. EPA asbestos staff and ARB asbestos staff observed improper disturbance, removal and disposal of asbestos ceiling material. Immediately after the inspection, the U.S. EPA and the ARB required the owner of Mulligan's and the owners of the motel, to clean up the asbestos materials. During the renovation, asbestos material was also found outside in the open air, exposing the general public and workers to the materials.
